Girl with a doll
Meisje Met Pop, or Girl with Doll, is a picture by Jan Sluyters (1881-1957), a watercolorist, graphic designer, illustrator, painter and illustrator. This portrait was painted in 1928. His works include children's portraits like this one but also still lifes, historical scenes, interiors and landscapes. However he may be best known for his portraits of women.
I thought at first it was just a cute little girl but the more I look at it, the more character I can see in it. She's obviously been dressed in her best clothes for the picture, though I'm not sure how thrilled she is with the experience.
